1. Chapel of Ease Old Trinity Episcopal Church Marker
Inscription. In the selection of the middle point between the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay for the start of the Mason-Dixon Line survey, this area was the center of a long controversy among British, Maryland and Pennsylvania officials as to whether Taylor's Island was a part of the mainland or an island. An adverse decision resulted in the loss of land to Pennsylvania, now Delaware.
